Rachel Doughty Art
Links to the Landscape
Rachel's work always has a starting point but the final outcome can often veer well away from that through process and manipulation of the mediums. Experimentation is a large part of Rachel's practice.
For this current body of work, Rachel has focused on landscape and it's history. How the landscape changes over time and the layers of soil and stories that are accumulated are reflected in the layers of materials used by the artist.
The works are produced through creating my own collage papers through painting and printing. These papers are then torn or cut and reassembled. They can then be worked into with further mark making and the last process is to often stitch lines with embroidery thread.
